Real Madrid Return Set For Carlo Ancelotti With Zidane Close To Exit

Real Madrid could be on the lookout for a new boss as doubts continue over Zinedine Zidane's future.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has emerged as a candidate being considered by president Florentino Perez.

Sources close to Zidane say he won’t make a final decision on his future until after Real’s final La Liga game against Villarreal on May 23.

But there is a growing belief around the club that he will quit as manager for a second time at the end of this season, whether they win the title or not.

While Perez is also struggling to find the funds to bring in the players his manager would ideally like.

The pair have spoken about Zidane’s future and the budget that will be made available for him, and Perez has subsequently sounded out other candidates in case there is a parting of the ways.

Former striker Raul is the most likely candidate to succeed Zidane but Ancelotti, who led Real to Champions League glory in 2014, is still admired in the corridors of power at the club.
